The AGM of the Angela Thirkell Society,
NAB was held in Richmond, VA in Oct. 2004. Jerri Chase, a member
of the ATS, AT and DES email discussion groups gave a fascinating talk
the Lives and Works of Dorothy L. Sayers, D.E. Stevenson and Georgette
Heyer with Angela Thirkell. She has graciously allowed us to add
this to our web site. Please click the title link to read this enjoyable
We get many queries on how to pronounce
this author's name. Georgette Heyer pronounced it "Hare" (rhymes with fair).
However, her grandfather was Russian, and the name was pronounced
"Higher" (rhymes with "flyer") when the family emigrated to Great
Britain. During World War I, the family (along with many families
with German sounding names) changed the pronunciation to sound less German
and more British and began to pronounce it "Hay-er," and eventually
"Hare". So it seems all versions are *technically* correct but now
you know which the author herself preferred.
We attempt to describe all flaws.We
want you to be pleasantly surprised instead of disappointed when your books
arrive. Digital photograph of any book sent via email upon request.
